about the corridor
It can be a difficult environment since the street offers none of the amenities normally needed for traditional cinema. No seats. No tables. No outlets. No etc. The Corridor staff, all experienced arts presenters, hover to make sure critical elements: power, food, and water, are available to every artist, and that the atmosphere of the event is calm and focused on the creative work.
It is always a surprising environment where images and sound enter into unexpected juxtapostiion and artists begin using light and sound to create a spontaneous conversation. This experience cannot be predicted, but it is always transformative in its fashion.
Honoraria are paid to artists for their work, generally a symbolic amount no less than $50, more when commissioning funds are available.
